So, there was MojoFiction, a lone Stormtrooper standing atop an ice-encrusted rise on Hoth, surveying the battlefield below. Rebel scum relentlessly assaulted a relentless Imperial defense of an uplink station that could be used to call down Y-Wing bombers, probably relentlessly, to weaken the two AT-AT walkers that lumbered  across the ravine in an effort...

Poorly Drawn Lines (a book review)

I'm not sure it's fair to classify this as a book review. Poorly Drawn Lines is really a web comic that became so good that its midichlorian count flew off the charts and it became self-aware, resulting in the spontaneous conception of a physical publication that manifested itself in my local Barnes and Noble. Whether... Continue Reading →

That probably wouldn't have been a big... Continue Reading →

Life Itself (a book review)

I've been slowly reading Life Itself for months, one chapter at a time, usually late in the evening. I didn't take my time because the book is boring or confusing, or because it isn't compelling. I took my time because this book demands it. This trip down someone else's memory lane isn't for the trivia nut. It's... Continue Reading →
